, you just don't know any facts. first of all, one little fact, i really wonder whether mr. panetta who talked about the smallest number of ships since 1915, said that in a letter to your former boss, senator mccain, would really be happy to give this argument is ridiculous. wasn't a republican who made that case. it was mr. panetta. number one. number two, the navy is going to be bigger because i funded the ships that are being built. it takes a few years to get them out to see. look at the pattern of naval spending, and the number of ships over the next few years. the air force, rich was very careful to talk about platforms, not aircraft. why? because he's talking about drones. not just planes. you want to watch this very, very carefully. i'm not saying rich wasn't giving you facts. i'm saying that it's a reflection of this administration that when it comes to worst, there's a lot of -- there's an awful lot of fancy footwork. finally, defense going up, it's not going up in real terms. it's going up in nominal terms. big difference. and i come back to the point, why has this administra
. all of them did. leon panetta actually took -- my face in his hands like this, and he says trust me. i will tell you what happened. and so far, he has told me nothing. nothing at all. and -- i want to know. >> it is important for you to know all the details, no matter how horrible or how tough they are to hear? >> exactly, i told them if it is such a secret thing, fine, take me in another room, whisper in my ear what happened so i'll know, and then we'll go from there. but no, they treat me like -- at first, i was so proud because they were treating me so nice when i went to that reception. they all came up to me and talked to me and everything. i cried on obama's shoulder. and then he kind of looked off into the distance. so that was worthless, to me. i want to know, for god sakes. or for allah's sake, or for whoever's sake is there. >> you deserve answers? >> i think so i believe i do. i believe it. it is my son. i had him for the -- i told obama personally, i said look, i had him for his first 17 years. and then he went into the service. then you got him. and -- i wouldn't say it th
the service. we are very closely partnering with the department of veterans affairs and rich secretary panetta, getting ready for the meetings, naturally. but the issue is that we are seeing transition as a career long activity. what that illuminates is that you can credentialed people. you can get a welding certificate that is portable across the united states if you are a welder. truck drivers, electricians, communications resource. the tougher ones are tankers and infantrymen. we are working with them to transition over time. and not just at the end of their career. >> today we have a veteran that attended georgetown and the university of oxford. costs for oxford or one 10th of georgetown. would you ask american private universities to provide best affordable education in comparison to overseas education >> well, first of all, you have to be a pretty smart son of of it, don't you?

something about, i think. and that is the sequester. now, we know that mr. panetta, our secretary of defense, has said the sequester would be a disaster. as it would be. and i refer to him for chapter and verse about the size of the navy, the air force, the army. where did that originate? where did that idea come from? turns out it came from the white house. turns out mr. jack lew had a meeting with senator reid and congresswoman pelosi and suggested this. and initially, apparently, they weren't too keen on the idea until defense was thrown in. now, how much does defense really amount to percentage wise in terms of the problem we as a nation face? if you talk about given budgetary spending every year, discretionary spending, defense is pretty nigh on 50%. if you talk about the real problem which includes entitlements, defense is 14%. if you look at the $55-odd billion coming out of the sequester, that works out to about 1.4% of our overall problem. but better than 10% of the defense budget. now, are you going to tell me that the solution to our national financial problems is cutting defense?
